Goodnight, Sleep Tight

Exhibition and Shows

20 Mar 2020 to 12 Jul 2020

Sleep is something we all do – and we all do it differently.

Today a good night sleep is a solid eight hours of sleep on a comfy mattress, but how did people sleep in the past? Why did people in Medieval society have two sleeps a night and how did people sleep before all the modern comforts we have today?

From hospital beds to chamber pots, nightcaps to coconut mattresses, discover the history of sleep, how we sleep today and how people might sleep in the future.

Exhibition developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
